It doesn't matter. If they weren't giving a free platform to 4Chan Nazis like Richard Spencer and Gavin MacInnes all they'd be doing today would be making excuses for the likes of Derek Fildebrandt. Because double-dipping by lefties is pure evil but when a conservative does it then it's clearly endorsed by every ethical code that ever existed, if not by Gawd itself.

"The Rebel's coverage suggested Spencer and his followers ought to be afforded the same rights as left-wing protesters"

Well CBC...'masters of lie by omission', actually in this particular case the original organizers of the rally had more right than the antifa, BLM, and the other assorted anarcho-Communists that were bussed in.

It was lawful assembly with a permit. That's how free speech works under the American constitution. It's for all Americans. Even the extremist scum of both the left and the right. But the Alt Right guys had a permit.

So yes, once more the Rebel was correct and the CBC with their lie of omission was wrong.

Gavin McInnes isn't a nazi. And he refused to attend the Charlottesville rally as a representative of his 'Proud Boys' group.

He wasn't there and this is how he actually feels about what happened.

Rebel is international. They have arms in Australia and the UK. They've traveled from Europe to Israel on stories. That's just who they are.

They are based in Canada and they have representatives covering specific areas of our country though.

For example, here's the Alberta rep dealing with this story of the Alberta politicians attacking Rebel on their coverage of Charlottesville.

Good for Lilley for pulling the pin and walking away. Hopefully the Canadian Jewish community and the conservative political machine start putting a lot more pressure on Levant to knock it off with the flirtations he's having with these scumbags in the US.


Brian Lilley was never that big an influence on Rebel in spite of what the CBC is telling you. He'd drop in every once in awhile with a video that got minimal hits.

He's lost his balls is all that's happened here. He's running under cover of a flurry of convenient virtue signalling. It's bullshit. The actual rebel commander couldn't be more clear about his disavowal of the alt-right. So if that was Lilley's problem, as he claims, there actually isn't one.



In fact some good may have come out of this Charlottesville thing. The lines have been clearly defined now, and these guys calling themselves "alt-right" are no longer going to be able to represent themselves with the mainstream right.

That's why I don't trust Ezra or the rebel. That shit would get you fired most places, or dropped if you were an independent. And that editorial decision is probably why Brian Lilley left. He knows a sinking ship.

The Rebel Media focusing on Canadian Politics is what made them and now for some reason Ezra took the focus towards International and US politics and associating with people like that are hurting the brand.

I'm actually with you on Loomer, Brah.

She seems to be an embarrassment waiting to happen. But the Rebel wants an edge, in fact they have an arm called "Rebel Edge." They have McInnes and Tommy Robinson too. I'm actually prepared to support those two. Loomer though...I don't know.

The Rebel’s steady spiral downwards
Quote:
There was a time, early last year, when Alberta Premier Rachel Notley’s office barred Gunn Reid from covering the Alberta legislature and journalists gulped and defended The Rebel’s media access. It’s much harder to see that happening 18 months later, after any number of episodes that may have prompted Brian Lilley, as a professional journalist, to leave and warn about the dark path Levant’s organization has taken to draw clicks, eyeballs and crowd-funding. Maybe it could have been the anti-Notley rally dotted with “lock her up” chants from the crowd; coverage of the Quebec City mosque shooting that focused on doubting that the white male charged with murder might have done it; a Toronto rally against a House of Commons motion denouncing Islamophobia doubled as a pro-Islamophobia rally; Rebel commentators appearing on conspiracy-monger Alex Jones’ Infowars; or McInnes’ drunken rant from Israel originally titled “10 things I hate about Jews.”

This is a gob-smacking inventory. The bridge too far for Lilley was his organization becoming the Canadian angle to a violent white nationalist protest, even as less than half of The Rebel’s audience actually resides in Canada. The ensuing international coverage that casually called The Rebel an alt-right website finally prompted Levant himself to say: hey, we’re not cool with that stuff, and we are not racist and not alt-right.

Macleans is as Liberal as it gets and everything it mentions up there is spun crap, starting with the fact "Islamophobia" isn't a real word in that it was created by Islamofascist activists to be used by useful idiots, but it doesn't actually mean anything real.

What Maclean's said is what Rebel's critics think of it and not to acknowledge it doesn't fix the problem. Things can be turned around which means ether Ezra drops the US angle or separates the two and kicks people like Laura Loomer to the curb.
